    Propaganda for Neurologists

    I feel this book is very helpful and informative for those coping with this chronic disorder. What dissapointed me most about this book was the bias in favor of neurologists. The authors, both board-certified neurologists, feel that their profession is the most qualified to deal with ADD. While I believe all medical and mental-health professionals are beneficial to this disorder, I feel their assertion that neurologists are the only professionals that should treat ADD is simply propaganda. ADD has a neurological component, but keep in mind it is also multidimesional in its eitiology and course. Keep in mind also that neurologists specialize in treating diseases of the brain and nervous system. They are usually not trained in psychotherapy This book is helpful, but remember to look beyond their self-serving bias.

    Duhh information

    The information is stating what adults with ADD already know. The book only restates the obvious. However the information in the back of the book for web sites and other books to read is very helpful.

    Neurologists aren't the only people that can treat ADD!

    This book is basically a book written to bring more business to neurologists. Written by two neurologists who state ADD is best treated by neurologists and with medications. Their bias gets in the way of this book being useful. In the real world, try to find a neurologist who will take on ADD patients! Psychologists and psychiatrists are much better trained and equiped, AND available to treat this disorder. I would never recommend this book to my patients!

    Written for the lay person, but still biased

    This book is helpful to those who suffer from this pervasive disorder. Perhaps the strongest attribute of this book is that it dispells the still commom misconception that ADD is outgrown by adulthood. This is certainly not the case as a plethora of research has suggested. Unfortunately this book is still biased in favor of Neurologists. The book asserts that Neurologists are the best trained to deal with treating ADD. I don't believe this is accurate. Neurologists treat brain and spinal cord injuries; they do not practice psychotherapy.
